Citizens of India above 18 years of age have the right to vote and he/she should exercise this right to choose the best in their knowledge. But usually it happens that a proportion from the eligible voters seem to have less or no knowledge about whom they are voting for.
Microsoft and Network 18 have partnered to launch India Elections 2014 Windows Phone app powered by IBNLive.com and Bing to educate people about Indian democracy. Using the app, one can get complete information on political parties, candidates and constituencies. The app also brings Live TV to keep track of election updates as they happen.
The app brings all the relevant information to users in an array of formats such as interactive visualizations, thus making it easier to understand the data. In addition, it also allows users to connect with leaders from various political parties on Twitter and see the kind of work being done by them as far as campaigning and manifestos are concerned.
The app fetches you customized content belonging to your constituency and reminds to go out and vote with a ‘Save the Date’ function.
The app is available for free download on Windows Phone Store and will be launching on iOS, Android and Windows tablets very soon.
